Ingredients

    -1 tbsp olive oil
    -1 1/4 lbs (20 oz) Foster Farms 93% lean ground turkey
    -32 oz (about 1 1/2 jars) roasted garlic parmesan sauce (can substitute any healthy pasta sauce)
    -1 medium spaghetti squash (yields 4 cups cooked)
    -1 bag (12 oz) broccoli sauce
    -2 cups fresh spinach
    -Salt and pepper to taste
    -Any favorite seasoning to taste (optional, I like to use country french vinaigrette seasoning from Penzeys Spices)

Tips

The spaghetti squash can be cooked a day ahead and kept in the refrigerator. This dish is great for left overs.


Directions

1. Begin by baking the spaghetti squash. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Pierce the whole shell several times with a large fork or skewer and place in baking dish.
3. Cook squash in oven for approximately 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until flesh is tender, It took about 1 1/2 hours for mine to tender up.
4. Once the squash is cooked, let it cool for 10 to 20 minutes so it will be easier to handle, before cutting in half and removing the seeds. Pull a fork lengthwise through the flesh to separate it into long strands.
5. Heat up a large pot with olive oil. Cook ground turkey until browned, season with salt and pepper (plus favorite seasoning).
6. Add pasta sauce and cooled spaghetti squash to pot. Heat until warm
7. Add broccoli slaw and spinach to pot and cook until tender and spinach is wilted
8. Enjoy your delicious and healthy meal!
